New camera has, I think, made a difference.

Thanks Guys,
Always had the aspiration, and thanks to one World Class photographer I now have the inspiration, "Thanks Hristov". Thanks again,

Wow, beautiful pics there Mick! :)
I especially like the second one... Reminds me of some of my old Malawis (why did I give them up?!?). What are the common names for the ones that look like Kenyis? (lol, if not Kenyis.)

Thanks again for the complements.

Dookie I don't, (I am sure you are aware) advocate the use of common names for any of the Rift Valley cichlids. I find it a job to keep up with the reclassification of cichlids form the aforementioned area, let alone worry about common names. Thinks.....Yeah why is the specie Protomelas taeniolatus called the red Empress, why not the red Emperor....it is the male of this specie that dons the red colour? Psuedotropeus lombardoi is the correct name for the specie you refer to and is attributed to Burgess. It is sometimes sold as P. kenyi, Kenyi being what could be termed the common name but I suggest that all in the hobby when referring to a particular specie in text should use the Latin name, that way there would be no confusion. In the nicest possible way,

I know what you mean there Mick. But I find the common names easy to pronounce, and most of the latin ones really difficult and hard to remember. When I had my Malawis though I would always find out both common and scientific names. :)

Those are getting quite creative! You must have spent a long time waiting for just the right moment! I especially like the one in the previous post and the one with the cichlid turning away... excellent! :yic:

It's not the waiting that gets me, it is the speed of the camera. Not the shutter speed but the time taken between clicking and the photo being taken. I end up with a shot of the spot where it was directed but no fish, or the subject has moved in such a way that it's not worthy of a copy. One of the many good points of digital cams is your not wasting film, just time, thank goodness for the delete function, :lol1: :tup:
